Default 93 Reborn Build

Well this is the start of my build thread guys.

I bought this 1993 5.0 LX right before I deployed in Jan 09. Purchased it off of craigslist for $450 as a roller that had a pile of parts inside the car but it is missing a few pieces. I am going to build this for a performing DD that I can put my girls in the back and go for a ride. The story I know behind it is that it was wrecked and given a salvaged title from California in 96 from a front end collision. Then it was stripped to its current state in 06-07. Who ever welded the front clip on to fix the damage could NOT weld worth a damn and I do not know how it lasted as long as it did. More on that subject later though. I have done a few things to it to get things rolling over the last week and a half but here are some pics to get it started. ENJOY!

Lol, the main parts I am looking into getting from here on out are the interior pieces (pretty much everything), 5 lug swap stuff, seat tracks, and a hatch assembly. I have a set of 3.55 gears comming to me from a friend once he puts the 4.10's in his Mach 1 so that will be the next upgrade.
